Miguel Duarte is an interdisciplinary anthropologist with a background in Sociocultural and Biological Anthropology. The student aims to investigate ways in which Amazonian epistemologies can inform and update current research on Human Cognitive Psychology, especially as it relates to concepts of agency, intentionality, and ontology more broadly. At The University of Texas at San Antonio, Miguel intends to promote new methods which can join ethnographic fieldwork with experimental psychology while simultaneously contributing to cross-cultural comparisons in general.
